Slow food and living market, Rosewood hotel London

25 May

Rosewood_Market_15We found out that the courtyard of the magnificent Rosewood Hotel in London hosted a wonderful slow food market every Sunday, so not even the windy rainy weather was going to stop us: we were determined to enjoy the delicious scents, the colourful stalls and the natural, tasty products that the market had to offer.

Spuntino, London

11 May

Spuntino_London_227 stools and a popcorn machine. That’s all we knew about Spuntino. Quite intriguing, no? A couple of weeks ago we decided to look for this tiny restaurant in Soho. We found its discreet entrance and we saw the 27 stools and the pop corn machine. We came in, we ordered almost everything on the menu (we ate popcorn as well, obviusly) and we decided Spuntino was going to be a new favorite in London. Another favourite restaurant in London you ask? Well, yes. When you see the mac and cheese and the steak and egg, you’ll understand. Continue reading

What’s new, London?

7 May

london_may_2015_6You know what they say: when man is tired of London, he is tired of life. Well, we can’t agree more. London always offers something new, interesting and exciting. No matter how many times we visit London, we are always surprised: by an exhibition, a restaurant, a trend, a view… It can definitely be overwhelming but with the help of our friends and a slow-paced (wink!) approach, we try to take it easy and let the city surprise us. If you follow us on Instagram you probably know that we spent last weekend in London. So here you have the mandatory post with are our latest discoveries in this fascinating city: Continue reading

This Christmas…

18 Dec

parisWe would love to…

Have cup of hot chocolate in Angelina Paris and then go for a long afternoon walk in Montmartre.

Skate along the frozen Dutch canals in Kinderdijk.

Experience an authentic Winter wonderland dream in Putevny, Czech Republic.

Indulge to high tea in London (at the Claridge’s, if posible).

Ski in Switzerland (that means watch other people skiing while we sip a hot chocolate mocktail in a cosy wooden cabin).

Wander through the almost deserted alleys in Venice.

Observe the Northern lights in Lapland.

Go Christmas shopping in Copenhagen.

Take my mum to Scotland for a whiskey tasting.

Visit all the traditional cafes in Vienna and eat lots of Dobos Torte…

mmm… Monday! Roast, London

15 Dec

Roast_London_1During our last London getaway we followed Rachel advice and had breakfast at Roast. After strolling around Borough Market we decided to have a second (yes, second) breakfast and we enjoyed a fantastic quiet morning overlooking the market.  Continue reading

Weekend style icons: Julia

12 Dec

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe’ve just discovered Julia thanks to Alba, the designer of our beloved AB Jewellery, and it’s been love at first sight. And by just I mean yesterday! Alba announced on her Facebook that she was meeting her and we got super curious. Alba is one of our references when it comes to trendspotting so we had the feeling we will love Julia’s blog. And we did! We’ve been browsing Stylonylon all morning and we thought we absolutely have to share it with you. In a few hours she’s become one of our favorite bloggers ever! She is a photographer, writer and pretty much everything what we would love to be.   Continue reading

Where to travel in 2015?

11 Dec

3e34d6d03c3b8b2293f65817476c761a
This week we’ve done two quizzes to guess where we should travel in 2015. This one in the Lonely Planet web says we have to go to Singapore (we both got the same result!) but the quiz in the AFAR website claims that I should experience art in Paris and P. has to recharge in India. Well, we’ve never thought about visiting Singapore to be honest. Maybe we should, apparently it matches our personality, go figure! But Paris is always a good idea. India, on the contrary, scares us. In any case, our travel plans for 2015 are quite different:

In February we are planning to spend a weekend in Mallorca. We want to go back to Serra de Tramuntana, eat in Ca Na Toneta and remember a little trip we did five years ago to prepare our destination wedding. If you are curious you can have a look at the posts we did about our wedding here and here.

We don’t want to miss The Hive in April. The Hive is the blogger conference that we couldn’t attend last year nor the year before. We promise we’ll be there! We are even thinking about an extra night in Berlin to visit this spa.

But our trip in May is going to be the highlight of the year: we will try to visit Rome and Costiera Amalfitana to celebrate our 5th anniversary! We spent our honeymoon in a little family owned hotel in Ravello and we’d love to come back and reminisce. We are trying to add a couple of extra nights in Rome too. Let’s see what we can arrange…

In June we’ll be flying to Seville for the most special wedding. Our dearest friends are getting married and I’m sure it’s going to be amazing! We just can’t wait!

The end of the Summer is reserved for Stockholm. Everyone talks about how beautiful it is and, well, we even created a moodboard about it. So it’s time to turn that wanderlust into a reality.

Our traditional London Christmas trip will be the last getaway in our calendar. We just can’t get enough of London at Christmas. Or London for that matter…

As you can see we have lots of planning to do! No long distance trips, though. What can we say? We are weekenders and city break girls.

Which are your travel plans for 2015? Please answer those quizzes and let us know the results in the comment section! It will be fun!
